Solange Knowles: Beyonce 'Is Such A Role Model'

Solange Knowles rocks a pair of oversized shades on the cover of UK’s Rollacoaster.

Here’s what the 25-year-old singer and DJ had to share with the mag:

On Beyonce as a sister: “She was and is such a role model, but I think more so it was an insane learning process for me to have a big sister like that – to be able to see the good, the bad and everything in between that comes with fame and success, and to know what I was getting myself into. But I really enjoy my privacy and being able to walk my son to school every morning and pick him up every afternoon. I know that I couldn’t do that if I was at the next level – privacy, as you know, it just doesn’t belong to you anymore. I definitely made a conscious effort to stay as low key as I can and still do what I want to do.”

On becoming an aunt to baby Blue Ivy: “It’s very different to being a mother, but there’s still that sort of magnetic bond and love that you can’t even put words on to describe. I think babies in general are so lovable – and my sister’s baby, Blue, is so beautiful. She is really a beautiful little baby. It’s really special to have a niece because I have a son, so I get to have a little girl too.”

    A role model for what?? Fake hair?? Trying to be white?? Cashing in on the musical talent of others?? I mean who knew that Beyonce wrote the classic Christmas carol “Silent Night”

  • dobbi

    B please.

  • mama

    lol role model? role model for those who are willing to pay for song credits, pop their privates, sing like a robot and be just a bland person overall? ok.

  • Tope

    Seriously,you are going to crucify beyonce for using extensions? Can you tell me one black celebrity that you know that does not use extensions/wig?why crucify only her?she & jayz have been together for over ten years,how many times in those ten years have you heard her talk about how caring,loving her husband is or hear her talk about what he bought for her like some other celebrity do,yet someone said she pushes her private life forward.maybe she can’t sing,how many of the female singer today can you compare to the female singers of 1990? Her mother(Tina) is 1/32 black with a strong gene,Google is our friend,lets try and check out her baby picture before we conclude that she is trying to be white.

    JLO wears extensions so does Lala Vasquez, Evelyn Lozado.

  • Maggie

    So does Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson! Lord knows I am not a Beyoncé fan but you shoukd admit that she is more of a role model than most of those celebrities, she’s been with the same man for ten years, never been a famewhore about it, you never saw her drunk or high or wearing no panties so yes in that way she is a role model !!!

  • Lovely

    I have been trying to be nice but I just have to say it- sorry in advance for being rude- but it must be hard to be the- uh- plain looking sister of beautiful Beyonce. there, I said it,

  • Tia

    @lexy hates bilson: You sound broke, bitter, and dumb. Tell me, what does wearing weave have anything to do with being a good role model? Girl, bye.

  • lucinda


  • lexy hates bilson

    LOL! Love how you focus on that hair weave comment and not that fact that Beyonce has no talent and has to basically insist on writing credit and well we know she can’t play an instrument.
    No reason for me to be bitter. My hair real hair is fine and I’m not broke nor do I have to steal from others to make myself famous. I’m not the one claiming to have written Silent Night!!
